I have been drawn to painting in watercolors because I enjoy the transparency and luminosity. I use layers of transparent washes and push unusual colors. I use layers of images to give a painting more depth. I embellish my work with calligraphy, collage and stitching. A painting should be more than a photograph. It should convey the artist’s unique perspective.
Printmaking is exciting in that there always seems to be a surprise when removing the paper from the plate. I like the textures that can be achieved by inking various papers and arranging them on the plate. I also like the embossed effect made by the press. More recently, I have focused on layering prints, using various plate sizes and formats to create more depth and uniqueness in the resulting print. Mary Mosblech
